Judge's comments:

True mastery of materials and detailing with superb confidence in the ability of the spaces to juxtapose between lightness and solidity.

When laying your eyes on this project for the first time, it's easy to see how you need to pick up your jaw from the floor. A beautifully provocative and considered home that will surpass that unforgiving sense of time due to the irrevocable and valiant use of materials.

This project is an ode to true craft. Through the use of highly refined detailing and exquisite materials it forms a romantic relationship to it's surrounding landscape. Not over powering but ever so gently enhancing it.

A hightly tactile and nature-driven palette that interacts seamlessly with the architeture to create a feast for the senses.
